Cheating Husband Sues Apple After Wife Discovers “Deleted Messages” he Sent to Prostitutes

A cheating husband intends to sue Apple after his wife discovered “deleted” messages that he sent to sex workers on another device. The businessman who remains anonymous is a middle-aged man hailing from England who claims that Apple’s lack of transparency over deleted messages resulted in his wife filing for divorce.

The businessman told the Times he turned to prostitutes in the last years of his marriage and often contacted them through the iMessage app on his iPhone before deleting the texts. His wife discovered the messages on the family’s iMac computer that he believed to have deleted.

Speaking to the Times newspaper, he said, “If you are told a message is deleted, you are entitled to believe it’s deleted,”

“It’s all quite painful and quite raw still. It was a very brutal way of finding out [for my wife].

“My thoughts are if I had been able to talk to her rationally and she had not had such a brutal realisation of it, I might still be married.”

“Divorce is an extraordinarily stressful process and you have children and family dynamics.

“In my opinion it’s all because Apple told me my messages were deleted when they weren’t.

“If the message had said, ‘These messages are deleted on this device’, that would have been a clue, or ‘These messages are deleted on this device only’ that would have been even better.”

The businessman is now pursuing legal action against the company for losing more than five million pounds he lost in divorce and legal costs claiming that the company doesn’t inform customers that deleted messages may appear on other Apple devices.

Simon Walton, from London law firm Rosenblatt represents the businessman shared with the Telegraph that,

“Apple had not been clear with users as to what happens to messages they send and receive and, importantly, delete”.

“In many cases, the iPhone informs the user that messages have been deleted but, as we have seen, that isn’t true and is misleading because they are still found on other linked devices — something Apple doesn’t tell its users,”

“I would be eager to hear from other Apple customers who have experienced similar issues,”

Telegraph has contacted Apple for comment.
